Along the zip line, you will be able to have an aerial view of the historical buildings and lush green forest below as well.

D. South Coast Jamaica, St. Elizabeth - Appleton Estate Triple Zip

Zipline Safety In Jamaica

  • There should be a small session that gives guests an outline of what to do and what to avoid while on the zipline. There should also be a rundown of the hand signals or gestures the tour guides will use and what action should you take when you see them.
